Happy Anniversary Friday Shoot My Town


 Can you believe it has been 4 years since the first
Friday Shoot My Town blog party.


In this week's post share something about FMTSO.
Tell us when you started linking up with us, share memories, repost your favorite theme from one of our topics, or talk about the friends you have made. If you have a chance, invite one of our former participants to come back and link up this week or just to stop by and say hi. You can find them in the older posts linkys, comments or the side bar listing which has not been updated in a while. You don't need to know them to invite them. Just introduce yourself and extend the invitation.
Let's make this a special week.



I first started blogging on Nov. 13, 2008.
When I first began, my blog was entitled simply

"Queenmothermamaw
a blog about faith, family and fun.
Stories from Kentucky." 



 This was my first header.
My IT son took a photo of the Queen Mother and put my face in it.

I still do not know how to do that.



This was one of my first FSO photos.

Theme
Memories from my childhood.


Although I did not grow up in this town there are childhood memories here.

When I was a young girl this was the location of the swimming pool in Bardstown, the only swimming pool within driving distance of our little town of Springfield. We came over here to swim whenever someone could convince their parents to bring us.

It is now called Bardstown Village. Example of early pioneer living with a  waterwheel where the mills is. 

I had to change my old blog for security reasons and it became
"Day of the Lily"
July 20 2010   

I began to do FSO regularly on 
Dec. 11. 2009
That theme was weather.

 Because I have been having my blog printed by Blog2Print ever since I started blogging, even though my first blog is lost, I was able to find this shot of My Old Kentucky Home in one of those books.
I remember standing outside the home while it was sleeting to get the shot since the theme was

Weather

   Below is a shot  I got a while after I started to blog regularly with FSO and I began to learn how to get better shots.

Still learning.

I love the texture in this shot and how clearly the stones and some of the wind-blown blossoms show between the planks of the bench.

We have lost some regular FSO participants, some have gone to be with their maker, but hope some of the others will return to share with us one day.
Missing Barry so much while working on this post.
Found a e-mail I had gotten from Linda right after he passed.
I will never forget him and Lindsay. 

Go here to share more FSO

Love all your photos, especially of that beautiful building.

Your photos have improved but more because of confidence then any problems with ability at the beginning. you have an artistic eye and a love for the topics that always show through. Have enjoyed knowing you and even more our few moments of private conversation.

FMTSO is a great learning place, isn't it. I find it a very good challenge to "think in themes" (even if sometimes I forget and Friday takes me by surprise)

Well I for one am never bored when I check out your blog. Your creative streak is always flowing and you keep your blog new and fresh by changing the background often. I agree with what Ginger said.

Blog2Print is this expensive? I am glad we both post to this FSO meme. It is such a close group of friends.

interesting reading - I love history!

It always seems to me, Peggy, that you have a great eye for photography. And an original way of interpreting a topic, I always looks forward to what you will have for us each week. And your warmth always shines through!
